These biscuits are similar to the Greek “Kourabides” or the Austrian “Vanillekipferln” but much healthier and very quick to prepare.

Ingredients: 3 cups oats, finely ground in blender 1/2 cup organic, cold pressed, odourless coconut oil – gently melted,  (or cold pressed olive oil) 1/2 cup of raw, unheated, untreated honey (or coconut blossom sugar and a little water) […] Continue reading →

I recently watched a video on how David Wolfe made a version of this super healthy, very tasty salad dressing, which is especially good for a youthful looking skin, but naturally has loads of other health benefits as well.

This recipe is really easy and tastes so good, that I could  eat a whole bunch of spinach, kale or Swiss chard in this form all at once. You can buy this as a ready made snack in some health shops or vegan restaurants, however it is expensive. Making it yourself is simple and much more economical. If you grow your own spinach as well, then this is an added bonus. And of course living in Johannesburg, South Africa, we get so much sunshine, that you don’t even need a dehydrator – […] Continue reading →

Depending on where and how the headache occurs, one can categorise them into tension headaches, simple headaches, combination headaches or migraines. The causes can be varied, eg. infectious diseases, muscular tensions in the head, neck and shoulder areas, over-indulgence of alcohol and nicotine, dilated blood vessels in the brain, food allergies or sensitivities and sensitivity to […] Continue reading →
